My one 1/2-year-old still sleeps with us how can I break the habit?
You put them in their crib in their own room. You make a bedtime routine
Put them in a crib or toddler bed in their room
Putting them in their own bed.
My ex was boyfriend at the time his 9 year old daughter slept in same bed with me or she threw a fit like a dang 2 year old even though I would tell her no
Good luck lol keep putting them in their own bed no matter how many sleepless nights you’ll have they will get the point
Ik its not for everyone but i would lay them down and let them cry for 5-10 mins at a time
Go in and hold for 3-5 mins and start over
No sleep for like 4 days but it worked
Once you start, its hard to get them to stop, I put my child in her own bed from the beginning
Take a couple weeks of crying and late nights
My baby is 7. Let me know what you come up with.
I’m too soft and when my kids cry I comfort them. My husband had to take over he just put them in their bed in their room and closed the door. Took about a week for them to get the hint and just go to bed without crying.
Floor bed. That age crib is useless. Try sleep mediation (my absolute favorite on YouTube) lay with them as they fall asleep. Gradually lessen the times.
Let me know when you figure it out. My 3,6,7 sneak in my bed
Stick to it.
Consistency and patience
You’re the adult.
Wow, the advice here
It won’t be easy to break the habit, but consistency is key.
Perhaps start off by getting them a new pair of jammies or bedding, and express that they are a big boy/girl, and they will now be sleeping in their own bed. Try to make it fun, but!
Every time they get out of bed at night, return them to their bed… every single time. You can stay with him/her for a few moments and rub their back, or sing a song… but then leave after. And continuously keep doing the same thing.
Start with naps in the crib and slowly transition them at night
Put them in their own bed?
It’s amazing how many are not nice on here. Obviously if she could just put them in their own bed she would it takes a bit more than that for some kids… they may be scared of something etc… I would suggest finding out why they don’t want to sleep in their own bed and start by fixing that issue. Sometimes buying something new, like a night light or new bedding will excite them enough to want to on their own. You can also start by laying next to them too they fall asleep but let them know you will be leaving once they fall asleep…then make the time less and Jess each week/day whatever works best. Be stern with them too. Make sure they know this IS going to happen. It’s not up for debate! Good luck!
Through out the day make it a fun thing by saying what a big kid they are being and talk about it excitedly. Hang out in his/her room through the day with them if possible. Just keep encouraging it. Make a big deal in a good way. Then when bedtime comes put him/her their own bed. Still talking to them telling them how proud you and what a big kid they are becoming. Your child might cry and try to come in your room. Explain to him/her why they are sleeping in their own bed now then take him/her back to their room. Do that every night and hopefully that will help. It will be hard at first, but the more you stick with it the easier it will be.
When someone says “Don’t do it in the beginning” Really?! She’s obviously past that point and wants advise…shoulda, woulda, coulda…
Like some helpful mum’s have said get into routine of bed/cot. Some people stay in room till they settle some don’t. I give mine bottle in cot whilst staying in room.
